As at 29 June 2012 bwin.party has a total of 812,674,805 ordinary shares of 0.015p each issued and admitted to trading. Each share carries the right to one vote, with the exception of shares held by the Company's employee benefit trust, bwin.party Shares Trust (the 'Trust'), which has waived the voting rights in respect of the shares it holds. As at 29 June 2012 the Trust holds 6,049,714 shares and therefore the total number of shares with voting rights is 806,625,091.
The total voting rights figure of 806,625,091 may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, bwin.party under the DTRs.
Note: The Company's articles of association provide that the provisions of Chapter 5 of the DTRs, as revised from time to time, shall apply to the Company as if the Company were not a 'non-UK issuer' as defined in the DTRs.
